Donut King in the Wodonga Plaza has relocated but “do-nut” worry, because the business hasn’t moved far.
Coffee, milkshakes, donuts and hotdogs are now being served in the plaza’s food court.
Owner Cherie Vonthien said the business had outgrown the former site in the centre of the plaza where the store had been located for the past 15 years.
“It was time to freshen the place up with a modern new image,” she said.
“There’s more of a buzz here now in the food court.”
The store makeover and relocation was due to occur earlier but had been delayed by COVID-19.
The new-look store is a third of the size of the former site due to a smaller kitchen but the business has gained more seating for customers.
“Everyone is delighted with the change and there’s been a lot of positive feedback,” Cherie said.
“It’s great for those with trolleys and walkers because there’s more room around the tables.
“We get a lot of disability groups so they can spread out and move around more easily now.”
Cherie also owns the Mann Central store which opened in February and includes a full-size commercial kitchen.
“We were looking to downsize our kitchen here in the plaza, so we do (all the baking) at the Mann site now,” she said.
The relocation of Donut King is just one of many changes happening in the plaza with a children’s play area in development and several new stores planned.
